Introducing an interview with Prof. Victoria Sutton from Texas Tech University, who is a permanent visiting lecturer at VMU Faculty of Law.
In the conversation with the Vice-Dean of the faculty Prof. Charles Szymanski, Prof. Victoria Sutton talked about energy issues in Lithuania and the related implications in politics, environmental protection, etc.
The guest's U.S. background and competence allow her to present a sufficiently neutral and professional position towards many energy issues which are causing heated debates in Lithuania. These debates are often highly engaging because of the way they alternate between emotions and rationalism.
